Introduction: Gastro Intestinal Tract (GIT) is an important site for wide variety of lesions which include congenital, inflammatory, neoplastic conditions. The invention of flexible fiber-optic endoscope is a very good achievement towards the diagnostic field. With the use of this facility direct vision of diseased mucosa and biopsy of mucosal lesions, therapeutic induction and photographic visualization of the lesions are made possible. Aim: Aim of this study was to know the incidence of Gastro intestinal lesions with reference to age, sex and site and to study the histopathological types of Gastro Intestinal lesions. Materials and methods: The present study included 180 GIT biopsies (gastro intestinal biopsies) between the period August 2013 to August 2015 .Clinical details and case histories were obtained from the patients presented to the gastroenterology department. Biopsies were obtained by the gastroenterologist with fiber optic forward viewing endoscope. Results: Among all the GIT biopsies, esophageal biopsies were 11 (6.11%), gastric biopsies were 31 (17.22%), gastro esophageal junction 4 (2.22%), and small Intestinal 67 (37.22%) and 67 (37.22%) was from large intestine. Conclusion: Endoscopy and subsequent biopsy for histopathology can detect early malignant lesions. In the absence of endoscopic screening, detection of these lesions may be missed. Such patients may present with advanced stage of disease in later life. In endoscopic biopsy only mucosa is seen, the level of invasion cannot be ascertained.
